RCIA

(Right of Christian Initiation of Adults) Adults wanting to join the church go through a period of instruction and the celebration of several Rites before being initiated at the Easter Vigil Mass.  They attend classes with their sponsor once a week.  The classes consist of payer, lecture, discussion and fellowship.   St. Anthony’s continues to introduce new people to the Catholic Faith and bring others back to the faith through the RCIA program.   Once they are full members of the parish community, they are encouraged to get involved in the parish in any way they are able.
